I’m a man who wishes on broken bones. I’m a man who has a second chance to make things right.
He loves me fiercely, with abandon, the kind of love that sets fire to things until we’re standing in the ashes.
We just wanted to spend every second we could together. We were nothing if not inseparable.
It’s like we knew that time was running out.
I never told Rachel the truth about what happened that knight. Why my knuckles were raw and bleeding. Everything was a lie, right down to me telling her, yelling at her, that I didn’t love her anymore.
“I’m your home. I’ve always been your home even when you’v been somewhere else, even when you were hating me, trying to forget me, my heart has been your home.”
“I know what you and Rachel had was special, is special. And I’ve seen special. I’ve seen it with your father and mother. I’ve lived it between me and Ann. Cynics might tell you that young love isn’t real love, but when love is real, it’s real, and time and age don’t have a damn thing to do with it.”
“Rachel and I broke up a long time ago,” I remind him.
“And now she’s living next door to you.”
“Please tell me that meant to you what it meant to me.”
There’s a strange fluttering in my chest.
Fear. Hope. Love. Loss.
“What did it mean to you?” I whisper.
“The world,” he says before he kisses me, quick and light and laced with tenderness. “It meant the whole entire world.”
